Easing the Pain of Very Sick Children Through Martial Arts Therapy
Kids Kicking Cancer's Heroes Circle provides therapeutic martial arts to children and families in hospitals, community classes, and one-on-one sessions. Our mission is to ease the pain and trauma of children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Through an innovative program that merges modern integrative medicine with traditional martial arts, Kids Kicking Cancer addresses the overwhelming needs of children with illness. Specially trained black belt martial artists teach breathing, visualization, and relaxation techniques, in addition to traditional martial arts moves to help empower the children and provide them with a sense of power, peace and purpose. Martial arts classes, support during hospital and clinic procedures, and uniforms, are provided to families at no cost.
